[This post contains spoilers for the movie]
The last week (until Tuesday) I was in Japan. While navigating the complicated rail system of Tokyo, I kept seeing Aikatsu posters, until it dawned on me that it had just started showing on Saturday.
I had to watch this, I thought. I knew there was an Aikatsu movie happening, but I didn’t expect it to land by the time I was there! So I hastily put it into my plans.

So this blog’s 6th year anniversary passed by, and I was simultaneously marveled and horrified by it. I haven’t been posting for a while because of various reasons, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think about my blog at all.
I’ve contemplated on shutting the blog down for good, but I feel that it still has its own use. If ever I have a couple of thoughts that I have to write down, then this is one of the few spaces I could really let loose and all.
Aldnoah Zero and Captain Earth just wrapped up. But I don’t worry about that, because Argevollen’s not going anywhere, which is more of a good thing than not.
My brother and I usually watch these shows back-to-back, saving Aldnoah for last because it is the better show, in a I’m-trying-to-be-objective-here manner of speaking. However, I had the sneaking suspicion that Aldnoah Zero was going to end in a downer and a cliffhanger, because that is what split-cour shows usually do (Code Geass, Gundam 00, Fate/Zero), so I decided to go with it first.
Well, I was right. Important “characters” die, and I put air quotes around that word because reasons, and we’re left scratching our heads as to what would happen next in the second season.
Then we watched Captain Earth, and the reason why I’m able to write this post and not be a bitter rambling jerk on Twitter is because of that finale. Simply put, I hated one and loved the other.
Let’s start with the bad news: (oh, and spoiler alert, duh)
A first impressions post! I wanted to tie this with what I’ve been learning in writing flash fiction, so that I don’t forget it! It’s also great to know that what you’ve learned in creating could be applied in consuming. That is, the better you can cook, the more you can discern how a dish was made when eating it.
At the start of the Spring season, I tried watching an episode of Daimidaler. I couldn’t finish it.
Rather than love or romance stories, I wish we had more stories about friendship. After all, I believe that friendship is the bedrock upon which a stable relationship rests. I watch so many shows and movies with couples who can’t stand each other, and I often wonder, how the hell did they get together in the first place?
